, two weeks after sandy, but where does the recovery stand? but first, president obama gloats mitt romney mopes and the simpsons take a shot at karl rove. when it doesn't fit anywhere else we put it in the viewfinder. >> first i want to thank mitt romney. governor, i admire your tenacity. you got 48% of the vote. even though watching you run for president was like watching someone with roller skates trying to climb stairs. >> oh, darn it. darn it all to heck. >> the good news is that obama won. the bad news, only 39% of whites voted for him. that's the pattern. white people vote for white people like it's going out of style. and like most things that white people do, it's going out of style. >> what's next for you father? >> oh, i don't know. there is so much i want to see and do. i'd like to learn how mayonnaise is made. [ the simpsons ♪ >> hello, mitt. >> hello, karl rove. >> i still think you can win ohio. look, now might not be the best time but could i borrow $300 million? >> what were you doing? >> i went to l.a. >> working woman next to al roker who is a man in the world.
infrastructure. there is great concern since hurricane sandy the impact of global warming and what will be coming down the pike if we do not transform our energy system. they want us to be aggressive in that area. i think there is a lot of concern about education and the fact that there millions of young people paying to go to college and they want government to be there as well to make sure we have the best-educated worse forceworkforce in the world in this economy. what the right wing has been successful about is to suggest that their extreme ideology is what america wants. it doesn't. i think this is true in 50 states in this country. it makes sense to give huge task breaks to millionaires and billionaires who are already doing well, and then to cut back on work families? to answer your question, i think the american people understand especially amidst this recession that government is there to protect us and we all maintain a minimummal standard of living. >> the president led us back from this great recession the cataclysm of 2008 and then hurricane sandy the republicans whined and said it d
. unfortunately storms like hurricane sandy drive home the impact of climate change. has the president begun the process of explaining to the public why we need to act now and then giving us the range of options that are available to us? >> i think the opportunity is in front of him. he has got a pulpit. no one else has. he is the president. he can raise the issue of climate change to a level where demands a public discussion. he can raise the issue to a level where it becomes a political issue in this country. and that, you know, the next -- in two years is another election. it would be wonderful to have environment, climate change and being one of the issues that all candidates have to deal with. at this point, it is an ignored issue. when you ignore an issue sandy happens, huge amount of heat in the southwest that's never happened before is going to occur in this summer and those are consequences of not dealing with the issue. i think it is fundamentally at a human level, at a species. >> eliot:, a profound issue that we
our notion of community, especially in times of need. and that's why hurricane sandy was such a vital metaphor. it was the real-life reminder that crises whether the cataclysm of 2008 or a natural disaster requires a common effort in response. yes, our sense of community does not override our deep of belief that individuals make our nation great. but no individual can succeed without the surrounding support and investment provided by our sense of community and common purpose. mitt romney simply didn't seem able to convey this simple but core notion of what it means to be an american. fifth, the republican house has to figure out whether to continue to play on justist naysayer or come to the table. is grover norquist still the head of the republican party or will john boehner acknowledge the better angels of his nature and negotiate a meaningful compromise with the president. finally, the question for the president, will he tell the story of our national success with power and passion as he can and did last night to build support for the range of issues that demand attention, from the

was defeated last week due to a combination of hurricane sandy and a black panther standing outside of a polling place in philadelphia. and that the general petraeus scandal is all a conspiracy by the obama administration to cover up what really happened in benghazi but if you watched any other news source over the past week, you wouldn't have heard these bizarre and counterfactual tales. the reason for this is my next guest will tell you those who get their news solely from right wing media are trapped in a bubble where no facts get inside. here to tell us about the g.o.p. bubble is bill maher the host of hbo's real time with bill maher. it is a genuine pleasure to have you on the show. >> always great to be with you. >> eliot: thank you. did reality and the fake reality of the right wing finally collide on election day and did karl rove melt down in front of us and show he couldn't deal with reality? >> i think that's what we saw there in real time to beg a phrase. on tuesday night. it was a pleasure to watch. yes,
was affected by hurricane sandy. how much money do you think new york and new jersey can actually hope to get from washington to help recover? >> i think it is too early to venture a guess as to how much money. we'll see. clearly a large amount of money is needed. one interesting fact that i don't think has been mentioned is that fema has in its current budget in its current account which doesn't need replenishment from congress about $6 billion. all of which it could spend on new york and new jersey and connecticut. and that would exhaust its funds for the year. it would then have to come back to congress either for more funds but also because there will be other natural disasters there will be tornadoes in the midwest, flooding somewhere else an earthquake. and for any of that, to have any money, they're going to have to come back to congress. not simply for the new york/new jersey tri-state area. >> eliot: i hate to say it is a good thing but it means there will be a larger political coalition that will be supporti
